End of trials in Wölferlingen

Tags : 

Spring came in and it has already become summer. For ecology, the environment and the wildlife, this means a lot. Especially wild boars are leaving the woods in search for food in the fields. Now that the whole area is having plenty of food as a result of the sunny spring, wild boars don’t specifically go into the trial field anymore. Possible new trials at this location will start in the autumn.

Researchers of Liverpool John Moores University and Bird Control Group are now viewing and analyzing the video and photo material from the test site. This location is within a large Natura2000 area and contains plenty of wildlife. The camera footage is showing plenty of deer, wild boar, hare, fox and some different bird species. The researchers are now looking for footage where the LIFE Laser Fence laser is causing any reactions in the wildlife behavior. Sufficient reactions are a proper basis for drawing any conclusions from the trials.

Notice boards for dissemination of Laser Fence

Tags : 

Volterra has designed the notice boards which are a valuable tool to disseminate information about the project to indirect stakeholders and the wider public.

At five of the six trial sites the partners have placed a notice board with a description of the project in Spanish and English. Additionally, two project partners have placed a smaller sized copy (A3) of the notice board at their office in their respective working languages.

A pdf version of the notice boards is available through our download section.

Below you can see the installation of notice boards at our partners´ facilities and trial sites.

Steering committee meeting in Cuarterola

Tags : 

On November 14th and 15th, the project partners met at the Cuarterola estate, owned by Ángel Camacho Group to evaluate the development of the project. During these days, the status of the different LIFE actions was examined, specially the preparation and implementation actions, in the presence of the EU monitoring officer, Neil Wilkie. The obstacles faced by the project were also addressed and the financial details of Laser Fence were discussed. Project members unable to attend in person also participated in the meeting via Skype.

Finally, several visits to the Ángel Camacho Group were conducted to see the lasers which are installed there, and the products offered by the Group were tasted. The partners thank the Ángel Camacho Group for the excellent organization of the event.
